I stayed longer than I should have
A few years ago I started a new job after a very difficult three months; this job gave me security and stability which I was looking for. Before I got the job I would look out for other opportunities but once I got this job I did not look at other opportunities. I have always been driven by goals but when I got this job I stopped setting goals for myself. I was a kid with a dream to do great things but the previous three months had completely knocked my confidence. I felt very lucky to even get the job. A year later I realised that I needed to make a changes in my life, I needed a new job to enhance my career but I did not do anything to change anything in my life. I stayed in that job for nearly four years and for two years of it I was unhappy. I did not make a move because I was comfortable, i miserable but comfortable. I did not leave that job until it reached a point where I had to leave. If I was not pushed out I would not have moved on and I would not have learnt the things that I have learnt in my new adventure.
There are a lot of people out there who need to make a move on to something new but they are sacred of making a move. My focus was on what I would lose if I made a move instead of what I would get if I made a move. I look back now and I wish I made the move sooner rather than later but now I have. There are a lot of people out there who could be doing great things today but they are staying in jobs, relationships and jobs that will not help them grow. What have you been trying to do in your life and what is holding you back? Why haven’t you made the move that you need to make in order to get the life that you want? What do you need to do right now to get back on track?
